Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Getting Fresh Gameplay Footage Very Soon
New gameplay footage is being shown off by Koei Tecmo at Tokyo Game Show and via Nintendo on September 26.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was the latest game to be revealed out of nowhere by Nintendo when it dropped earlier this week. The game followed Paper Mario: The Origami King and Pikmin 3 Deluxe in debuting not in a Nintendo Direct, but via a random video on Nintendo’s Twitter account. It was revealed alongside an action-packed 2-minute trailer in which we got a glimpse of the destruction caused by Calamity Ganon, 100 years prior to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
While we already got a taste of what’s to come in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, we won’t have to wait too long to get another look at what the game holds. Revealed again by Nintendo on Twitter, we will be receiving a fresh look at Age of Calamity in just over two weeks on September 26.

This announcement from Nintendo coincides with Koei Tecmo’s Tokyo Game Show appearance. The Japanese developers, who also developed the first Hyrule Warriors, have confirmed that they’ll be showing off live gameplay of the game on that same date. The TGS footage is confirmed to be containing new information, including “character introductions by the development team.” It’s unclear whether Nintendo will be revealing anything else about the game, or if it will just be a rerun of what was shown off by Koei Tecmo.
While just over a month ago Nintendo’s line up for the rest of this year was looking sparse, a spate of announcements over the last few weeks has made things a little better. Alongside Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity’s November Release and Pikmin 3 Deluxe’s launch in October, we have Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a collection of three of the best Mario games, 64, Sunshine and Galaxy, dropping in just a weeks time.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches on November 20 for Nintendo Switch.
